    Well this is a surprise and actually I am quite happy if this is the case....

    https://n4bb.com/blackberry-venice-s...-release-date/

    5.4-inch Quad-HD display
    18 MP rear-camera
    5 MP front-camera
    1.8 GHz Hexa-core (Snapdragon 808 chipset) 64-bit
    3 GB RAM

    What I am especially happy about is the Camera and chipset....I really don't like the 810 processor and yes it would have been awesome that they would use the exynos instead

    5.4 Inch Quad HD is huge to be honest....

    Please tell me you what you guys think.....

    I would not expect BlackBerry to make a slider be their flagship since they are known for their Keyboard. If these specs are true, then this will be a major upgrade for ANY BB user currently. Pretty much for any Android user as well. The camera will delight many and the 3 GB Ram will be a pleasant addition to most users.

    Wonder what their base storage memory will be. Anything less than 32GB will be a slap in the yap.

    Why they didn't put that kind of specs on the Passport ? It's the first time since a while that Blackberry put higher specs than mid range specs in their phone... Maybe it's because this device will run Android instead of Blackberry 10 ?

    5.5" on my G3 looks huge, but doesn't feel huge. Hopefully they get the balance right with the keyboard open, or it's definitely going to be top-heavy.

    Good specs,

    but what do you have against the 810?
    It has overheating issues.

    Reason being is that the 810 is known to throttle performance under heavy load.....that is why a lot of android manufacturers opten for the 808 hexa core instead.....

    I'm loving the specs. If it runs BlackBerry 10 OS I'm all in. Goodbye Sony and goodbye Z10!

    A device with a 5.4" inch screen, is definitely on the large phablet side of things, then we add a slide out keyboard, that device is going to make the iphone 6+ look tiny.

    Hope the weight distribution is bang on. Still waiting to see the size of the battery

    That's a big phone. I work in the field and the Z30 is pushing it for me size wise. I wish BlackBerry would stay with the 5" screen. I really like that they may make this slider, though.

    It should be 4GB of RAM on 64bit octa core, no?

    No? No need for 4GB RAM, you will never use all of it.

    N4BB aren't exactly the most reliable for rumors.
    I remember them posting that the Rio/Leap would be a high end phone, the Porsche P9993 would be based on the classic with a track-pad and then they took a comment from John Chen about software and spun it as if it was a confirmation of a new phone. They even gave it a name and a release date!
    Either way these will be nice specs if they turn out to be true. Hopefully we'll find out a bit more next week.

    At least we now know this monster won't be running Android. Of course I'm just going by the amount of ram.

    Inconclusive. Many Android devices as well as the Passport carry 3GB.

    Just a guess. The ram is too short for android. Willlagallot.

    Because they didn't exist yet? The 808 want available until this Spring. I'm assuming the QHD screen is a Samsung part and those weren't available until this Spring as well.
